Re: Rodeo grounds

So am I understanding this right, The HLS&R is a private owned company. BUT the NRG grounds is county owned. Therefore their 30.06/07 signs are invalid? But the off duty cops who work as security will tell you its against the law to carry? They didn't say it was against the law to carry. They said ...

Re: Rodeo grounds

I thought Houston had metal detectors and wands at the gates and wouldn’t let you enter the grounds with a firearm. Like I said, the property is owned or leased by a governmental entity, so real peace officers don't enforce 30.06 on the property, but thugs do. This is the first year since 06/07 sig...

Re: The Bigotry of gun controllers

As an aside, I know one of the permit holders in California. His CCW is the most ridiculous looking thing I've ever seen. It's literally a typewritten, laminated sheet of paper cut with scissors. It looks like a six year old made it. No wait, that's impossible. Six year olds wouldn't know how to us...

Re: House Majority Whip Shot

One of the stories had this quote from Rep. Mo Brooks.
"We had nothing but baseball bats to fight back against a rifle with,"
That should certainly set up a conversation.

Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

Just ordered this one and a USB programming cable. The description says it has an "improved" antenna, so I didn't order another one until I get an idea how well this one that comes with it works. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MAULSOK?ref%5F=oh%5Faui%5Fdetailpage%5Fo01%5Fs00&redirect=true&psc...

Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

Re: Can 560 be resurrected?

The Governor could add anything to a special session. I can't recall any sessions recently where a gun bill was part of the governor's agenda.

Re: Bills Still Alive as of the evening of 5/23

I got an email from the SREC reporting on legislative deadlines and certain bills. The following gun-related bills are said still to be a priority. But they don't say the ones in House Calendars have a realistic chance. The email seems to be a way to make us think they're on top of things. SB 16 Ni...

Re: Krogers signage question

So I went to my local Kroger today and they have posted a sign that states the government code chapter 411. I am curious why they need that sign up? It's probably a simple answer that I know but can't remember, it just got posted recently. Was it the sign below? TABC was issuing that sign for a sho...

The state charges should be dropped if everything with her LTC is in order. She will likely get a civil fine from TSA in the $2k-10k range.

Re: 2017 Houston Rodeo

As long as your're not going to the "sporting event", carry. At the Fannin entrance, avoid the metal detectors with the helpful but misguided volunteers, and go find the cops that are usually in the golf cart near the vehicle entrance. "Hi sir, I will not be entering the sporting event premises jus...

Re: 2017 Houston Rodeo

Went last night. Both 30.06 and 30.07 posted at ticket booths. San Antonio was the same way. I just carried on. No wanding or pat downs there. They're wanding in Houston, but doing a poor job. Their "security" team never wands feet/boots from what I've seen. I stuck mine in my boot and used my knif...

Re: Harris County Precint 5 Park - Bear Creek

Doesn't the newly passed H.R. 2028 (Law No. 114-254) cover CHL carry on ACOE land? I think I read that this will allow it... I don't see anything about firearms or concealed carry in the text. https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/2028/text The COE is mentioned 7 times and only wi...
